    Trying to setup the Signalink to use with DigiPan. Waterfall looks fine...see signals...I only get garbage print (strange lettering and not words... Something must be off or not set. Any ideas would be appreciated. I have set things up many times and all seems to be correct but still just random letters on receive. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    It would be helpful to know what mode you're seeing this happen with. Also, what radio?

    That will provide clues

    I have set up the system so many times (successfully I believe) that I am beginning to think that the SignaLink itself is compromised in some way. Waterfall looks good, sounds are good, it goes into transmit on command...just random letters/characters appear in the DigiPan window. Mighty frustrating!

    It also seems strange that ALL signals last about12 to 15 seconds on the waterfall in unison like FT8...I thought all signals are of different lengths and overlapped the other signals...Very sstrange...
